The Mundell surname is one of the names that came to Britain with the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The name was de Magneville or de Maneville and derives from a place in Normandy.

Mundell Early Origins



The surname Mundell was first found in Wigtownshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Bhaile na h-Uige), formerly a county in southwestern Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway where they were granted lands by King David of Scotland. They were perhaps related to Geoffrey de Mandeville (d. c. 1100), an important Domesday tenant-in-chief, who was granted large estates in Essex, and in ten other shires by William, and was Constable of the Tower of London. His descendent Geoffrey de Mandeville (d. 1144,) was created the 1st Earl of Essex.

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Mundell arrived in North America very early:
